Started in 1892, Barcelona’s Sagrada Família has been under construction on and off ever since. Following architect Antoni Gaudí’s death in 1926 nine different architects have taken charge of the project. During the Spanish civil war Gaudí’s drawings and models were destroyed by fire lending controversy to the building’s completion.
The video shows the completion of the remaining work, scheduled to be be finished by 2026, the centennial of Gaudí’s death.
I was lucky to be able to visit the building in 2005 and highly recommend that anyone who has any remote opportunity of to visit it jump at the chance.
